About Us

Our story

Peepal Farm is a stray animal rescue, an awareness organization, and a women-powered small scale social enterprise in Village Dhanotu, District Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.

It started out as a home that we built with space for injured stray animals to heal & be heard, for people who wanted to help, and for us to be able to organically farm, while reducing our harm.

We started building Peepal Farm on December 9, 2014. Instead of putting in a swimming pool, we built a cow shed. Instead of an entertainment room, we have a clinic. Instead of having master bedrooms, we made rooms for those who want to come here and experience a simple, and purposeful life.

We had started doing good because of our philosophy. Then we learnt it feels great too :)

Philosophy

Our goal was to live a deliberate purposeful life - living to do maximum good, while causing minimum harm.

It's our understanding that physical pain is an absolute bad; so reducing pain, and nurturing changes that reduce pain is absolutely good.

Vision

To reduce physical suffering of animals.

Mission

Encourage critical thinking about our suffering footprint (the suffering we cause in the course of living), and inspire compassion (empathy in action).
